Little River (Middle Prong) GSMNP
The Middle Prong of the Little River is a tributary of the
of Little River, one of the major streams in Great Smoky
Mountains National Park. It is a small, beautiful
freestone stream. The elevation of the stream in its
lower part is fairly low and the stream gets too warm for
good trout fishing during the hot summer. The
headwaters are at a higher elevations, well shaded by
trees and the water remains a cool temperature
throughout the year.
The main stream is formed by the confluence of two
other small streams - Lynn Camp Prong and
Thunderhead Prong. These two small streams join
about four miles up the main stem of the Middle Prong.
The lower four miles is followed closely by a road. Trails
access the upper headwaters. At this time, above the
cascades, Lynn Camp Prong is undergoing a major
change. All of the rainbow and other fish are being
removed and it will be restocked with native brook trout.
It is closed to fishing at the present time.
